Washington is the tallest peak in the Northeast at over 6,000 feet, exceedingly windy, and the breathtaking highlight of the scenic Kancamagus Highway of New Hampshire.


Thanks for mentioning that! I taped it last week, just haven't had the chance to watch it yet.

Yeah Ive had it with this extreme cold. Our date day Sunday turned into stay inside day..lol. (We did go out Valentines evening).

My husband went out to feed the birds yesterday and came back in within minutes. He shouldn't be outside long anyway, hes asthmatic. And it was minus degrees with well below zero windchills @ 20 to 30 below!

Well anyway even though Im cooped up more than out this Winter, I AM thankful for the roof over my head and heat. On the news I saw homeless people sleeping in tents in this weather! People went to check on them and hand out supplies. I cant imagine living like that! It is so sad!

You're right about your husband, shorty. Any severe temp change like that can trigger a really bad asthma attack. A good reason to keep him inside home and hearth Smile

I remember being atop Mt Washington in the summer and it was snowing!

Saranac Lake is in the Adirondacks.

My friend lives in Old Forge NY - the lowest it's been this month is minus 22 - BEFORE the wind chill is factored in!

In Buffalo right now it's -4 with a windchill of -21!!!

The dog wasn't liking his outing at 6AM....he acted like his paws were on fire - even though salt doesn't work at those temps.

Do you have booties for him, terrier? I keep seeing a big push for getting foot coverings for dogs, there's a lot of foot damage being done to them by the cold and snow. Irreversible damage can be done.

Poor little guys {#emotions_dlg.sad}

No booties...he hates them.

I use the mushers ointment - but it's just too cold!

He's going to doggie day camp today...where he can run around indoors.
